Jabber Certificates Updated

Hello folks,

Edit: This has been superseded by newer certs.

all of you who are using the XMPP Server might have been greeted today with a “certificate changed” message. I just uploaded signed certificates from our certificate authority. If you installed the certificate authority in your system, then the transition should have been transient.

Depending on the TLS method you are connecting, here are the fingerprints for rsa and dsa certificates:

alpha-labs.net_rsa, 21-Mar-2014, 
Certificate fingerprint (MD5): F0:F4:FD:F9:F8:59:4F:F7:31:88:16:98:98:1D:32:22

alpha-labs.net_dsa, 21-Mar-2014, 
Certificate fingerprint (MD5): A6:54:39:89:B5:7E:13:1E:1D:9F:B3:6C:CC:05:AF:64

This might be a good time to just import the certificate-authority. If not, you have to import the certificate every year again.


Touched base with Linux back in 1995, got hooked up on it ever since. I am using Linux for both private and office for two decades. Working as a System Administrator at a medium sized hosting company I get in touch with all kinds of trouble. All of which can be solved with Linux. In my blog I am sharing solutions to problems that I had to search for myself in hope that someone else out there might find them useful.
